      This is boring - not in the East - but when Pektusan was over a Pektusan secret partisan camp in a log cabin on North Korea's highest and most revered mountain, and at that moment a double rainbow and a bright star appeared in the sky. This is beautiful.

        We are not arranging chamomile, comrades. We will endure the week and see who will be the new ringleader in this area. The main thing is that they would not fight. And then the election of a national leader, in countries with a dictatorship regime, often resembles a children's game, well, the one where everyone runs around in a round dance around chairs, but there are less chairs by 1 than children. And like someone managed to crouch fellow

    A chance for the country to change its political course ... I do not mean rapprochement with the West, but at least open the border with South Korea. so many people are divorced from their relatives.

        How to arrange it there? Against the backdrop of modern North Korea, the iron curtain in the USSR was an openwork curtain. The Internet and mobile communications, if any, are only for a small circle of the ruling elite. Centralized media under the full control of the state. So there will be no revolution there.

      And what did he do this for the Northerners? Now North Korea is in such an economic hole that Southerners do not very much want to unite even on some of their conditions. Especially looking at Germany, where in the western regions still (surprised to learn from friends who live there) they pay a tax on the rise of eastern Germany.

      For the USA, no. And China does. In the world, only China can influence North Korea. And they may have a "family drama" - after Pyongyang staged a nuclear show on October 09.10.2006, XNUMX, a representative of the PRC Foreign Ministry called the test arrogance. At the same time, the Koreans look disapprovingly at their wealthy neighbor who, in their opinion, is gradually moving away from Mao's ideas.

        For the South, there is no worse nightmare than reunification and a horde of hungry northerners, the GDR was a paradise compared to the DPRK, but the Germans are still divided into "eastern" and "western". Believe me, South Korea will be the main enemy of the reunification for many years to come.
